pruning blackberry bushes

Zone Northern Kansas | Anonymous added on October 18, 2016 | Answered

I planted 2 blackberry bushes that vine out this past spring and they grew great but, of course, no berries yet. I have only seen how to prune them after they have had berries. How do I cut them back this first year?

    I would leave the Blackberries for now and prune them in the early spring.
